[Americans with Disabilities Act]The Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) was enacted by Congress in 1990 and prohibits discrimination against those with disabilities. The ADA defines a disability broadly, as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity. Additionally, even if someone does not have an actual disability, but is regarded as having a disability by his employer and treated differently because of it, he is covered under the ADA. The ADA acts as a safeguard to protect the rights of the disabled, and the Atlanta ADA attorney team at Brandon Hornsby, P.C. will help anyone who has been discriminated against or treated adversely due his disability or perceived disability.

Disabilities are often out of our control. Sometimes we are born with them, sometimes life experiences and accidents leave us with them. Regardless of your disability, you deserve the same treatment as every other person. The ADA provides for protection against discrimination for qualified individuals with disabilities, and you should consult Atlanta disability discrimination attorney Brandon Hornsby to discuss whether you count as a qualified individual.

Employers are not only required to treat people with disabilities the same as other employees, they must also attempt to reasonably accommodate individuals with disabilities. There are over 54 million Americans with disabilities (over 20% of the US population), and unfortunately, there are many employers who still are not making accommodations for such individuals, refuse to hire them, or attempt to fire them once learning of a disability. Atlanta disability discrimination attorney Brandon Hornsby has fought for those with disabilities and handicaps for years and will continue to do so until people with disabilities are no longer treated like second class citizens. If you have been treated adversely because of your disability, regardless of what kind of a disability it is, contact an experienced Atlanta ADA attorney at Brandon Hornsby, P.C. and see how we can help you.
